This Greenwich Village Apartment Sells from One Celebrity to Another


Live in New York? Want to live in a celebrity real estate property? This is your lucky day! Academy Award winning actress Holly Hunter has just listed her apartment in Greenwich Village for $8.7 million. This unit, located at 43 5th Ave, was once owned by Hollywood actress and movie star Julia Roberts.

Hunter bought the home from Roberts in 2005 for $4.1 million with British actor Gordon MacDonald before the birth of their twins in 2006.

Although its unknown where Hunter is looking to move after the apartment sells, according to Real Estalker blog it is said that it is possible the mother of the two is looking for more space for her family to grow and enjoy.

The residence is located in a full-service Beaux Arts building on the luxurious Lower Fifth Avenue. About 3,000 square feet, this building features three bedrooms, three baths, a large eat-in kitchen, and two separate offices. All of its original wood moldings and trim have been restored, and the apartment includes a cozy library, a large living room parlor connected to the dining room by french doors, and a windowed butler's pantry with adjoining laundry room.
